Since designing our first industrial sewing machine in 1928, Brother has enjoyed a reputation for innovation. We incorporated years of industrial sewing machine knowledge and engineering expertise into our line of computerized embroidery equipment. Case in point: the exclusive automatic oiling system found on our single head models revolutionized the industrial sewing machine market when Brother introduced it more than 70 years ago. And, the jumbo bobbin technology, another Brother first, which has performed to the highest standards of excellence for more than 40 years is found on all Brother computerized embroidery equipment. World-class engineers and designers staff Brother’s state-of-the-art Research & Development Center in Japan where they are constantly designing and refining embroidery technologies to solve embroidery manufacturing challenges.

AUTOMATIC LUBRICATION SYSTEM Brother’s unique wick oiling system significantly reduces machine maintenance downtime. Oil is poured into a conveniently located reservoir on the machine, and a wick that is threaded through the internal workings of the sewing head delivers oil when and where it is needed, eliminating the time-consuming task of oiling numerous hard-to-reach locations.

SINGLE CAM-DRIVEN PRESSER FOOT Developed by Brother, the cam-driven presser foot allows the machine to run faster and quieter. The precise movement of the cam reacts faster than the previous spring-loaded technology and reduces the noisy pounding of the presser foot on the throat plate. The single presser foot also facilitates increased machine speed and less maintenance.

JUMBO BOBBIN Maximize system productivity with fewer bobbin changes with the larger capacity, jumbo “M” style bobbins. Brother perfected the performance of the jumbo bobbin by designing the cams and gears inside the sewing head to accommodate the longer rotation of the larger bobbin.

EASY-TO-USE CONTROL PANEL Start sewing faster with the simple, logical commands found on the control panel. For example, the hoop feed button moves the pantograph out from under the needles for trouble-free applique placement and easier loading and unloading of hoops.

MEMORY RETENTION Resume stitching a partially complete design after the machine has been turned off, unplugged, or even after power failure. Shut the machine off to work with a customer, go home for the evening, or even move the machine across town and never lose a stitch or go off registration — another Brother first.

INDIVIDUAL CAP FRAME ADJUSTMENT Adjust the center point of the cap on each head independently while it’s in the frame and mounted on the machine. Eliminate off-center designs and time-consuming framing adjustments with this advanced cap frame driver design.
